Teaser Tuesday - on Wednesday
Today's teaser is just a little late but at least it's arrived! I'm quickly falling in love with this book too. The teaser comes from One Amazing Thing, by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni. It's the story of nine people- most strangers - trapped in a building after an earthquake. To pass the time, and keep their sanity, they each share one amazing thing about their life.
From page 75:
While a delighted Meena takes a wobbly walk around the store in her grown-up footwear, her brother hands Jiang his card. Jiang has never known a man who carries a card. She looks down at the white rectangle in her hand--how heavy, how smooth-- to find that his name is Mohit Das, and that he is a manger--at such a young age!--at National and Grindlays Bank.
